Richmond, VA—On Thursday at 3pm, Delegate Sam Rasoul (District 11) and Delegate Elizabeth Guzmán (District 31) will stand alongside other elected officials, community faith leaders, and social justice advocates to announce the Off Fossil Fuels by 2035 bill. This will come hand in hand with the reveal of Food & Water Watch’s extensive report on Dominion Energy’s full history of clean energy obstruction in Virginia.
The report includes alarming information and new campaign finance numbers and details the company’s ploy to replace coal with another dirty fossil fuel, natural gas, at the expense of a healthy environmental future as Dominion’s climate emissions are trending upwards.
The group will demand that all of Virginia’s elected officials support the OFF bill and deny Dominion their dirty energy stronghold in the name of combatting the current climate crisis.
